These nine famous couples prove long-term love can win out, even in Hollywood.

Busy careers, clashing egos, the wear of the spotlight. Lots of factors seem to contribute to the frequent downfall of celebrity marriages and relationships (even Brangelina’s). But these nine famous couples prove that long-term love can win out, even in Hollywood.

3. Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest

Veteran actress Jamie-Lee Curtis and mockumentary actor Christopher Guest have been married since 1984. It was love at first sight for Curtis after she saw Guest’s photo in a magazine. Turns out Guest is also British nobility, having inherited a family title. Does that make Curtis “Lady Jamie-Lee”?
